If you come to any of my blogs and you do not like my type of Conservatism there are two accusations you could hurl at me. One is that I am an Islamophobe and the second is that I am a Homophobe.
The “phobe” part is derived from a Greek word that denotes fear; thus I would be in fear or perhaps an extreme irrational fear of Islam and homosexuals. The concept of fear connotes something in which the scared anxiety would lead one to be repulsed to such an extent as to avoid or to run from that causing the fear.
Along my thoughts of a “phobia” attached to Islam and homosexuality I do not feel the effect that bodily harm is imminent triggering the fight or flight autonomic response. As an Islamophobe and a Homophobe I am concerned of the effect those two lifestyles will have on my environment. My environment is one which I believe Islam is a false religion that has a very dark nature which is a threat to individual and communal safety as well as to American Constitutional issues such as Free Speech, Religious Freedom and Liberty in general. Likewise I believe the homosexual agenda to seek normalization in American is antithetical toward my faith which includes Biblical Morality.
Both Islam and homosexual activists view Biblical Christianity as a threat that might encroach on their spheres of influence or freedom to practice immorality openly. Islam does not like being called a pseudo-religion ripped off from Judaism and Christianity. According to Muslim holy writings when another religion calls Islam false that is an insult worthy of death. I am fairly certain Judaism does not have a Scriptural edict to kill those that insult Judaism. I am absolutely certain the Christian Scriptures do not mandate a death penalty if another religious person insults Christianity. Now I realize there are Christians that would become offended and take the insult as an attack and might start a fight resulting in death; HOWEVER such an action by a Christian would contrary to the Biblical New Testament. Homosexuals feel threatened by Biblical Christianity for the New Testament clearly spells out that sex between two males or two females is an abomination to God. Statistically most Americans still consider themselves Christians even if they are not strict adherent to a Christian lifestyle. Hence it is understandable that Homosexuals and their apologists on the Left side of the political spectrum do all they can to relegate Christianity to an outmoded religion that should be regarded as a collection of myths that for the most part is not applicable to a Western Secular mindset.
Now after my long-winded justification for Islamophobia and Homophobia there is another phobia that bugs me that will undoubtedly produce yet another epithet that would relegate me to what one might call an intolerant-racist Archie Bunker mindset (Humorous look). I am a huge believer that certain religions that like to be associated with Christianity but have a different doctrine than Christianity are not Christian. The two that come to mind immediately are Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormonism (aka Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints). The particular sect/cult I am going to focus on in this post is the Mormons. Why?
Mormons of today basically lead what definitely would be defined a Biblical Christian lifestyle. Mormons as a group of cult-believers are typically Conservative with a Pro-Life stance. Thus it is not the people that bug me rather it is the Mormon faith in general. Why am I picking on the Mormons?
It is because a candidate running for the Office of President under the Republican Party is a Mormon. That person is former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney. Actually Romney has been in the enviable political position as the front runner for the GOP slot as of this post.
Now I am not what one would call an expert on Mormon doctrine but I know enough for the Christian red flag to pop up. To my understanding Mormon theology teaches that Jesus is a created Son of God as opposed to being co-equal as One God in three persons known as the Trinity. The God of the Trinity has no beginning and no ending as in the first and the last and the alpha and the omega. The Mormon Jesus is a created supernatural being like the angels. Indeed, Jesus and Lucifer have a commonality in both being created. There is much more to be concerned about with Mormonism and a Presidential Mormon. The guy to read about this is Ed Decker of Saints Alive in Jesus. Decker is an ex-Mormon that is full of details on the reasons to be wary the Mormon cult. Below is an email I received from Saints Alive that points toward a book by Ed Decker at his website. I am also going to squeeze the info derived from the book at the Saints Alive website.

A secular reporter opined last week that if Mitt Romney made it to the White House in next year’s elections, Mormonism would become a main-stream Christian religion and it would add several million new members to its rolls.
My concern is not that a conservative Mormon would replace the socialist now occupying the White House, but that a few more millions of victims would fall prey to the doctrines of demons that are the foundation of Mormonism and lost to God and given over to the devil.
That’s it in the simplest of terms.
In my book, My Kingdom Come: The Mormon Quest for Godhood, I systematically detail the Mormon doctrines that separate its members from the true body of Christ and from the promise of eternal life in Christ. I also dedicate a full chapter to the Mormon Plan for America and the rise of Mitt Romney
I was back East recently and was watching the News when one of the new LDS warm and fuzzy “we are just like you” ads came on and I was impressed by the quality and impact of the ad to a lost and dying world. Would that a few of the mega-churches spend a tenth of what the Mormons spend and reach out with the real Jesus to that same lost world.
The problem is that for the most part, the Christian church has stopped inoculating its people against the warm and fuzzy demons of the cults. I have said many times that Satan is not going to come to you looking like a fourteen foot frog with bad breath. He is going to come as a sweet and enticing spirit.
The late Dr. Walter Martin said that the cults are the unpaid bills of the Church and it has not been more so than today, when the vast majority of the churches, especially in the evangelical community, do not want to offend anyone. They seem to forget that Jesus, the rock of our salvation, offended a whole lot of folks, especially the religious ones.
Rarely do I see a church confronting its people with their sins and calling for repentance. Words like “sanctify yourselves” and “be holy and righteous before Him” don not come from the pulpit very often these days. Salvation comes at the end of services by a quick two second lifting of a hand while all heads are bowed and eyes are closed, like it is a secret thing and no one should be privy to who was ‘saved.’
Might embarrass them.
Funny. Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father.” That’s the deal I would want in on!
Well, I started in one place and ending up in another. Let me get back on subject.
Because of the lack of discernment so prevalent in the church today, men like Mitt Romney and Glenn Beck seem to captivate the hearts of many Christians, especially some of our most leaders.
They seem to be able to casually trade their biblical integrity for the spotlight, standing with these ministers of deceit and openly accepting them as true Christian brothers, as though they were unaware that both Beck and Romney proclaim not the righteousness of the Living God, but their own righteousness as they work to become gods of their own planets. The Word of God warns us of this coming to pass in the last days.
I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. Rom 10:2-4
The other day, I watched Mitt Romney being interviewed by one of our most well known Christian TV personalities. This is a man with whom I have personally shared the dangers of the LDS doctrines. He knows the dangers. Yet this man who professes to have great spiritual discernment sat, knee to knee, with Mitt Romney, A Mormon High Priest wearing his magic temple undergarments inches from this great Christian leader who fawned all over this “strong conservative candidate.”
This last Sunday night, August 21, 2011, Carol and I turned on the TV to see John Hagee speaking on TBN, while at the Glenn Beck “Restoring Courage” event in Israel. TBN, another major player in Christian Television had dedicated its full broadcast power, without interruption to this mighty cause, led by the demonized temple Mormon, Glenn Beck.
Dear Lord, deliver us from the vanity of such blind fools.
Therefore, please accept a copy of the entire 12th Chapter of my book, The Mormon Plan for America and the Rise of Mitt Romney.”
You can download it from our Saints Alive Facebook Page,
Or email me personally at email@example.com And I will personally send you a full copy by return e-mail.
After you read it, I would ask you to send it out to every person on your email list and post it on your FB page, Twitter page and whatever other social networking system you use. This word must get out!
The Man Who Would Be God
The Secret World of Mitt Romney
Mitt Romney has a few secrets he really doesn’t want you to know…
Mitt isn’t just a member of the Mormon Church.
Mitt Romney is a Temple Mormon, a High Priest, and as such he has sworn blood oaths of sacrifice, obedience, and consecration to the church and the soon coming, long prophesied “Kingdom of God.”
His belief in and obedience to these laws will allow him to become a polygamous god in the next life, the literal father of the peoples of a new and different earth. He wears secret undergarments marked with sacred talismanic symbols that he believes will keep him protected as he works his way to godhood. He is truly a Presidential candidate with an actual, definable god complex.
This “Kingdom of God” is the actual Mormon Theocracy that will take over the U.S. government when the Constitution of the United States “hangs by a thread” and the nation is ‘saved’ by the Mormon Brethren, the LDS spiritual leaders. The prophet and the apostles and key Mormons in high positions, such as Mitt Romney sitting in the Oval Office. The money pouring into his campaign isn’t accidental. It is to fulfill prophecy.
Mitt Romney’s strong candidacy for 2012 and his possible presidency has become a whispered ground swell of speculation in Mormon circles, as they wonder if he is the “one Mighty and Strong” who will usher in the last days and bring America into the LDS “Kingdom of God.” These are the whispers that the Brethren hope do not become public but are laid wide open in this chapter.
